Phoenix's Power for the bumper, side skirts and rear under spoiler.  The hood is from Mine's.

Thank you. Only if they don't cost an arm and a leg... lol

So sick. Thank you!!! This is probably one of my favorite modded GTRs out there. Hood/rims/sides skirts/trunk/mirrors..etc. I wish the bumper has the 2012 touches, it'll make it more aggressive.

Anyone know the specs of these wheels? offsets? Will we need spacers for the flush fitment?

This month's Option Magazine had a 2-page spread on the Phoenix's Power demo car, so I scanned earlier today to share with everybody:

Thanks a lot for the info. What are your opinions on the offset of those wheels? Will be aggressive enough and look flush without spacers?

I personally think they're really nice looking and with a 20x11"+15 in the rear, they should sit nicely, but "aggressive" is inherently subjective.

Do you know if the blue car is running spacers? if not, that looks very nice.

Anyone get a chance to see the newest BBS wheel ? It has 20x10 and 20x11 sizes for the GTR! Weight is 8.8 and 9.4 KG for 20" sizes. Finishes are silver and black. Cost is around 220K yen retail

I don't think those are RI-Ds.  Those are the normal FI.

yes they are but RI-D are essentially the same wheels ... The main difference is that BBS Japan is using 7000 grade aluminum I believe to make them lighter. BBS Germany using 6000 grade wich makes FIs still pretty light and strong.

so if the difference is only a few lbs, might save $$$ and just buy the regular FI then tell everyone that they're the RI-D....lol

The point of the RI-D is major weight savings, due to the use of their new proprietary alloy.

The weight savings are not major when you choosing between RI-D or FIs. Both wheels look exactly the same but the price tag is different ... You won't go wrong with either one ...
